Only 14 left in stock. Really pleased with the product. Came on time for my cousin's birthday and it was perfect! As you can see in the photo. But it did not matter as you have so many other ones to compensate.
Thank you. In stock. Well worth the money. Didn't have any mishaps. Large balloons were still up a week later. Son was very impressed. Took a little time to put together and had to get the numbers and rose gold balloons filled with helium, but was well worth it as it looked lovely.
My daughter and the guests thought they were very impressed! Two balloons didn't stay up more than 5mins :. Currently unavailable. My son love it. See All Buying Options.
She's not 21 until next year it My daughter will be frilled with this as someone bought me a 50th one for my birthday and both of us loved it. She's not 21 until next year it doesn't hurt to get things early. It would be interesting to see the graphic split for planned c-sections, and another for all other births vaginal delivery, emergency c-section, any induction.
Something else that might be interesting to know — is there a time of year where it is more likely for IVF embryos to be transferred back and similar other fertility treatment to be carried out?
Being under consultant care it is more likely babies will be born by c-section. I was born on April 1, but it was in , so if they could calculate the birthdays from , that would be great. Yes, this is surprising, because with my friends group we hate november because 12 of them of 28 born on those dates.
Five on I have thought for some time that low birth rates for major holidays are due to lack of elective c sections. I think doctors and hospital staff would be difficult to arrange for Christmas day, Christmas eve, New year day, independence day. That seems obvious! Would be nice to see the same data set charted to moon phase.
And to see if similar trends hold true in other countries.
Maybe it is an American quirk to abstain from birth during festive occasions. I should be finished soon if you want to check it out:. Love this! Great work here and what interesting insights we can get from looking at the data this way. Any plans to expand to include earlier decades?
I wonder how different this map is for firstborn vs others. The ability to control delivery — for the benefit of the physician as well as the parents — has to account for some of the weirder anomalies. Obviously babies are being pushed off holidays and being done early induction or later C-sections regardless of the conception date no one plans that well!
The dearth of births on all of the 13ths of the months is bizarre. Is triskaidekaphobia actually that strong? Low birth rates on the days around the fourth of july and Christmas and New Years days.
This probably reflects low rates of caesarean sections or the preference of obstetricians NOT to operate on those days they have the day off. This also points to the fact that many caesareans are NOT a medical necessity at the time they are performed. I was supposed to be born on Thanksgiving, so that would have been weird. I suspect there is some flaw in the method or data. So c-section, inductions, etc are planned for before or after. Of course the latter aspect is only valid for holidays that are fixed to a specific date rather than a weekday or the moon.
The reason there are fewer births on major fixed holidays i. They are forgotten in the festivity of the day itself.
As a parent I would choose not to have my child born on a day when they are likely to not be celebrated or at least come second. Ask most anyone born on Christmas or Christmas Eve — forgotten.
And I would also personally prefer to not have been born on the 13th — superstition: not just mine but anyone elses. The tabular data would be a little easier to read if it could be sorted by date. Also skewed by trying not to induce over holidays and not planning C sections on holidays, and people planning to have children so they are at the beginning of the school year. This data was compiled incorrectly. Rather than take the average for February 29th including all years you only took the average using years with a leap year in them. Meaning that you misrepresented the data.
It is a nice analysis. Considering however how many induced births are in the US due to reasons of convenience of parents or doctor, I wonder what this actually states about anything. Your email address will not be published.

We know this is a cause of this bias because: For example, the day April 11th, from , falls on: Monday 3 times , , Tuesday 3 times , , Wednesday 3 times , , Thursday 3 times , , Friday 3 times , , , Saturday 2 times , Sunday 3 times , , It has more occurrences on a Friday and less occurrences on a Saturday compared to the other days of the week. Good catch!
I wonder why no one replied earlier. Anyway, thanks for the sharing this. I was born on April Fools Day, but it in ! So it was probably even rarer prior to this.
